Spotify snap broken in Ubuntu 23.04 (amdgpu)

Spotify snap broken in Ubuntu 23.04 (amdgpu)

  • Plan Premium
  • Country Argentina
  • Device Desktop
  • Operating System Ubuntu 23.04
  • Snap info
    • spotify 1.2.9.743.g85d9593d
    • snapd 2.59.1

After upgrading from Ubuntu 22.10 to Ubuntu 23.04, the Spotify snap is broken:

I checked and the .deb version is working fine:

I looked into journalctl and found this (look at the line that mentions amdgpu):
